Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

The present application is based on and claims the benefit of U.S. provisional patent application Ser. No. 61/239,116 filed Sep. 2, 2009; and the present application is a continuation-in-part application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 12/485,169, dated Jun. 16, 2009, the contents of which applications are hereby incorporated by reference in their entireties.

BACKGROUND

In industrial settings, control systems are used to monitor and control inventories of industrial and chemical processes and the like. Typically, the control system performs these functions using field devices distributed at key locations in the industrial process and coupled to control circuitry in the control room by a process control loop. The term “field device” refers to any device that performs a function in a distributed control or process monitoring system including all devices currently known, or yet to be known, used in the measurement, control, and monitoring of industrial processes.

Some field devices include a transducer. A transducer is understood to mean either a device that generates an output signal based on a physical input or that generates a physical output based on an input signal. Typically, transducers transform an input into an output having different form. Types of transducers include various analytical sensors, pressure sensors, thermistors, thermocouples, strain gauges, level sensors, digital valve controllers, flowmeters, flow computers, positioners, actuators, solenoids, indicator lights, and others.

Typically, each field device also includes communication circuitry that is used for communicating with a process control room or other circuitry over a process control loop. In some installations, the process control loop is also used to deliver a regulated current and/or voltage to the field device for powering the field device. Process control loops also carry data or a signal indicative of a process variable, either in an analog or digital format.

Traditionally, analog field devices have been connected to the control room by two-wire process control current loops with each device connected to the control room by a single two-wire control loop. Typically, a voltage differential is maintained between the two wires within a range of voltages from 12-45 volts for analog mode and 9-50 for digital mode. Some analog field devices transmit a signal to the control room by modulating the current running through the current loop to a current that is proportional to the sensed process variable. Other analog field devices can perform an action under the control of the control room by controlling the magnitude of the current through the loop. In addition to, or in the alternative, the process control loop can also carry digital signals used for communication with field devices.

In some installations, wireless technologies have begun to be used to communicate with field devices. Wireless operation simplifies field device wiring and setup. However, the majority of field devices are hardwired to a process control room and do not use wireless communication techniques.

Industrial process plants often contain hundreds or even thousands of field devices. Many of these field devices contain sophisticated electronics and are able to provide more data than the traditional analog 4-20 mA measurements. For a number of reasons, cost among them, many plants do not take advantage of the extra data that may be provided by such field devices. This has created a need for a wireless adapter for such field devices that can attach to the field devices and transmit data back to a control system or other monitoring or diagnostic system or application via a wireless network.

In order to operate an industrial process plant, field devices must often carry hazardous location approval ratings. There are different types of ratings and, to be widely adopted, a wireless field device adapter should be able to attach to each such field device without compromising the hazardous location approval rating of that field device.

One of these approval ratings is known as an explosion-proof or explosion-protected rating. The purpose of an explosion-proof enclosure is to contain an explosion should flammable gas enter the enclosure and ignite. If the enclosure fails to contain the explosion, it could ignite surrounding gases with catastrophic results.

Another type of approval rating is known as intrinsic safety (IS). An intrinsically safe device prevents ignition of flammable gases by limiting the amount of energy present in the electronics and by ensuring that electronic components are spaced far enough apart to prevent arcing in the event of an electrical fault. The heat generated by electronic components is also controlled. Making the electronics of a device intrinsically-safe tends to drive up the number of components as well as increase circuit board size. This also poses a challenge when the form factor of a device must be minimized.

In order for a wireless communication adapter to be used in explosion-proof installations, it must be explosion-protected itself and it must provide an explosion-proof barrier at the connection between the two devices. For an intrinsically-safe installation, the wireless communication circuitry must be intrinsically-safe as well. The ability to attach such an adapter to any device also drives the form factor. Industrial devices, such as field devices, can be installed in many configurations and are often disposed in tight spaces. This necessitates a small and unobtrusive design.

Providing a wireless communication adapter for field devices that is relatively small and unobtrusive yet still able to facilitate compliance with explosion-proof certifications and intrinsic safety would advance the art of wireless process communication.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF ILLUSTRATIVE EMBODIMENTS

Embodiments of the present invention generally provide a wireless transmitter that may be attached to a process wired field device that is either explosion-proof or intrinsically safe without compromising approval ratings of such field device. The wireless communication adapter is configured to provide explosion protection and also preferably contains intrinsically safe electronics. The adapter preferably includes an explosion-proof bather at the connection point to the process-wired device and includes electronics that are fully encapsulated.

FIG. 1 is a diagrammatic view of a process-wired field device 12 operably coupled to a wireless communication adapter 14, in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. While field device 12 is illustrated in FIG. 1 as a process fluid pressure transmitter, such as that sold under the trade designation Model 3051S, available from Emerson Process Management of Chanhassen, Minn., any suitable field device may be used. Typically, a field device includes a sensor module, such as sensor module 16, and an electronics module, such as electronics module 18. Field device 12 is often designed for compliance with explosion-proof regulations. Further, the design of electronics within field device 12 can be in accordance with an intrinsic safety requirement, such as one or more of the portions of the standard promulgated by Factory Mutual Research in October 1998 entitled APPROVAL STANDARD INTRINSICALLY SAFE APPARATUS AND ASSOCIATED APPARATUS FOR USE IN CLASS I, II, AND III, DIVISION 1 HAZARDOUS (CLASSIFIED) LOCATIONS, CLASS NUMBER 3610. Field device 12 typically includes a sensor, such as a pressure sensor, in sensor module 16 which transduces a process fluid characteristic, such as pressure, and provides an electrical indication of that process fluid variable to electronics module 18. Electronics module 18 then communicates process variable information over a process communication loop which typically couples via input 20.

As described above, it is becoming advantageous to provide additional communication abilities, such as a wireless communication ability, to process wired field devices. By providing a wireless process communication adapter, such as process communication adapter 14, additional digital information can be conveyed beyond that transmitted through the process wired connection. Such information may be communicated to a separate monitoring or diagnostic system or application for analysis. Further, the simple provision of an additional communication resource, such as adapter 14, also allows for redundant communication. It is important for process communication adapter 14 to be coupleable to field devices without adversely affecting the assembly's ability to continue to meet explosion-proof and/or intrinsic safety requirements.

FIG. 2 shows a simplified cross-sectional view of field device 12 and wireless process communication adapter 30 in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. Field device 12 is coupled to process communication loop 22 through input 20 and conduit 11. Examples of process communication loops include the Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART®) protocol and the FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus protocol. However, other wired process communication protocols are known. In the example of a process variable transmitter, field device 12 includes a process variable sensor 50 which is connected to measurement circuitry 52 to measure a process variable. Transmitter circuitry 54 is configured to receive the process variable and communicate the process variable onto the two-wire process control loop 22 using known techniques. Field device 12 couples to two-wire process control loop 22 through connection block 102. Wireless communication adapter 30 couples to two-wire process control loop 22 through connection block 106 and is mounted to the housing of field device 12, for example, through threaded connections 123 and 109. The chassis of the wireless process communication adapter 30 couples to an electrical ground connector 110 of field device 12 through wire 108. Field device 12 includes two-wire process connection block 102 which couples to connection 112 from wireless process communication adapter 30. Housing 120 of wireless process communication adapter 30 carries an antenna 126 which couples to wireless communication circuitry of the wireless process communication adapter 30. A radio-frequency (RF) transparent end cap 124 can be used to sealably couple to housing 120 to allow transmission of RF signals therethrough. In the arrangement shown in FIG. 2, five electrical connections are provided to the radio-frequency adapter, which include four loop connections along with an electrical ground connection.

FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional diagrammatic view of a wireless process communication adapter in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. As illustrated in FIG. 3, wireless process communication adapter 30 preferably includes a cylindrical, metal enclosure 120 with a large opening 150 at one end to accommodate radio-frequency transparent radome or end cap 124, and a relatively small opening 152 at the other end to accommodate field device coupling 122. Electronics 154 reside within cavity 130 preferably on a pair of printed circuit boards 132, 134. The electronics preferably include wireless communication circuitry to allow wireless process communication adapter to communicate in accordance with one or more wireless communication protocols. Examples of suitable wireless process communication protocols include: wireless networking technologies (such as IEEE 802.11b wireless access points and wireless networking devices built by Linksys of Irvine, Calif.); cellular or digital networking technologies (such as Microburst® by Aeris Communications Inc. of San Jose, Calif.); ultra wide band, free space optics, Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), General Packet Radio Service (GPRS); Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA); spread spectrum technology, infrared communications techniques; SMS (Short Messaging Service/text messaging); a known Bluetooth Specification, such as Bluetooth Core Specification Version 1.1 (Feb. 22, 2001), available from the Bluetooth SIG (www.bluetooth.com); and the WirelessHART Specification published by the Hart Communication Foundation, for example. Relevant portions of the Wireless HART® Specification include: HCF_Spec 13, revision 7.0; HART Specification 65—Wireless Physical Layer Specification; HART Specification 75—TDMA Data Link Layer Specification (TDMA refers to Time Division Multiple Access); HART Specification 85—Network Management Specification; HART Specification 155—Wireless Command Specification; and HART Specification 290—Wireless Devices Specification.

The electronics on each circuit board 132, 134 are preferably mounted with spacing around them, and between the circuit boards, to facilitate flow of a potting compound. With the enclosure sealed, a potting 136 is injected into chamber 130 through passageway 156 until the enclosure is full. While any suitable potting compound can be used, it is important for the potting material itself to meet the requirements of the approval agencies, which include suitable chemical resistance, thermal endurance at hot and cold operating temperatures, as well as other relevant parameters. Some embodiments of the present invention provide specific encapsulation-using silicone and specific adaptations in order to accommodate the various thermal stresses generated within the adapter across the entire thermal operating range of the adapter. Radome 124, enclosure 120, and field device coupling 122 provide a weather-tight shell for potting 136.

Field device coupling 122 provides a method of attaching directly to field device 12. Feedthrough assembly 140 preferably also serves as an explosion-proof barrier at the connection point. If flammable gases enter the enclosure of the field device and ignite, feedthrough assembly 140 will contain the explosion. Wire leads 158, 160 pass through feedthrough assembly 140. The interior of the coupling is filled with a potting capable of withstanding explosive pressure. The interior of the coupling includes a shoulder 166 that helps retain the potting in the coupling. Field device coupling 122 can also include a union and/or elbow to provide adjustability, as desired. In one embodiment, the explosion-proof barrier is provided by running wires 158, 160 through a cemented joint 164 in feedthrough assembly 140. This cemented joint 164 is created by filling feedthrough assembly 140 with a potting capable of withstanding explosive pressure.

Wireless process communication adapter 30 thus preferably uses encapsulation and adaptation of a feedthrough assembly to provide explosion and environmental protection and to reduce the spacing required between electronic components for intrinsic safety protection. Intrinsic safety spacing requirements are less stringent when the space between the components is filled with potting. This allows the entire device to be miniaturized more effectively. Encapsulation achieves explosion protection by excluding flammable gases entirely. The electronics of wireless process communication adapter 30 are completely surrounded by potting and therefore protected from the environment.

Some embodiments of the present invention arise from an appreciation of the difficulties of filling the metal housing 120 with a potting material such as a plastic or epoxy. It was extremely difficult, if not impossible, to design enough free space to allow the extra expansion/contraction of the potting over the operating temperature of the adapter without increasing the size of the final product. However, increasing the size of the final product was deemed very undesirable from a marketplace acceptance perspective. Instead, silicone potting is used, in some embodiments of the present invention, to encapsulate the electronics and it was determined that the silicone potting would adhere to the aluminum housing 120 but not circuit boards 132, 134 when the ambient temperature was below the cure temperature of the potting. Applying a silicone primer to the circuit board occasionally caused the potting to pull components off of the circuit boards, thereby potentially lowering manufacturing yields. Moreover, it was also determined that the potting could apply enough pressure to destroy large electronic components, such as electrolytic capacitors, by crushing those components when the ambient temperature was above the cure temperature of the potting.

Embodiments of the present invention generally provide a fully encapsulated wireless process communication adapter that employs a combination of a mold release, foam, and specifically cured silicone potting to compensate for relatively large thermal expansion differences between the potting and the rest of the components within the adapter.

There are four components that interrelate to provide an exceptional potting solution for a wireless process communication adapter. Those components include the type of the silicone potting, the type of the mold release, the provision of a foam cushion, and the cure process.

The silicone potting material was determined to be an exceptional candidate for the potting design. In particular, two-part silicone materials were chosen for the high density surface mount assemblies provided on circuit boards 132, 134 because these materials are compliant, and elastomeric materials generally do not apply high stresses to assemblies. Further, silicone potting materials provide good electrical properties and a wide useful temperature range. The choice of the silicone potting material helped drive the choice of the mold release, foam, and cure processes as follows.

In order to meet the intrinsic safety approval specifications set forth above, as well as long term reliability requirements, the silicone potting material needs to adhere to circuit boards 132, 134 in the product, but not housing 120. A number of factors make such design criteria difficult. Specifically, silicone adheres better to aluminum housing 120 than circuit boards 132, 134. Moreover, the large coefficient of thermal expansion of the silicone potting material made it pull away from circuit boards 132, 134 at relatively low ambient temperatures, thereby creating a gap between the potting material and the circuit boards. Further still, a silicone primer could increase the adhesion to the circuit boards so much that it resulted in occasional failures in the solder joints that hold the electrical components to circuit boards 132, 134. In order to create a situation where the silicone potting would adhere to the circuit boards during repeated thermal cycling, a mold release was sprayed on the inside of housing 120. The mold release generally lowered the adhesion of the silicone potting material to aluminum housing 120 below the adhesion of the silicone potting material to circuit boards 132, 134, thereby resulting in adhesion of the silicone potting material to circuit boards 132, 134 even at low temperatures. At such low temperatures, a gap was created between the silicone potting material and aluminum housing 120. Generally, silicone potting materials do not adhere well to many things, making it difficult to find a mold release that will lower the adhesion even further. As an example, Teflon® available from DuPont is a common mold release for silicones and works well in preventing the silicone from adhering to aluminum. Unfortunately, the silicone potting adhered better to Teflon® than to circuit boards 132, 134. Similarly, silicone oil is another common mold release but, because of the similarity to the silicone potting, the silicone mold release actually increased the adhesion to aluminum housing 120. Instead, a mold released based on lecithin was employed to lower the adhesion of the silicon to aluminum housing 120 below the adhesion of the silicone to circuit boards 132, 134. This layer of lecithin mold release is illustrated in FIG. 3 diagrammatically at reference numeral 180.

FIG. 4 is a chart illustrating the results of adhesion testing for silicone potting to various surfaces. This testing was useful in arriving at the synergistic selection of materials and processes for embodiments of the present invention. The adhesion of silicone potting to the circuit boards varied with the cure temperature of the potting. Higher potting cure temperatures were found to result in lower adhesion of the potting to the circuit boards, while lower potting cure temperatures resulted in higher adhesion of the silicone potting to the circuit boards. The adhesion of the silicone potting to the aluminum housing appear to be unaffected by the cure temperature of the potting.

Since low silicone potting cure temperatures are desirable to maximize adhesion to the circuit boards, the high thermal expansion of the potting over the operating temperature of the process adapter could result in high internal pressure within housing 120 between the potting cure temperature and the upper operating temperature limit of the adapter. For some embodiments, a 22° Celsius potting cure temperature was originally used. For reference, the upper operating temperature of the wireless process communication adapter is approximately 85° Celsius. The difference in thermal expansion between the silicone potting material cured at 22° Celsius and the upper operating temperature resulted in an approximate 9000 psi pressure rise within housing 120. This pressure was large enough to crush electronic components, such as electrolytic capacitors, within the wireless process adapter. While it was also determined that the pressure could be lowered by simply raising the potting cure temperature, this had a negative impact on the adhesion of the silicon potting material to the circuit boards.

As shown in FIG. 4, using a silicone primer, an adhesion rating of approximately 40 psi between the silicone potting and the circuit boards was observed. Without any primer whatsoever, the adhesion was approximately 7.5 psi between the circuit boards and the silicone potting. The adhesion between the silicone potting material and the aluminum housing, when sprayed with a mold release, was determined to be approximately 17.5 psi. Without the use of a mold release, the adhesion between the aluminum housing and the silicone potting material was approximately 8 psi. Moreover, the adhesion between the silicone molding material and the aluminum housing, when sprayed with a PTFE mold release, was approximately 7.5 psi. Finally, the adhesion between the aluminum housing and the silicone mold release, when sprayed with a lecithin mold release, was approximately 2.5 psi. Certainly, spraying or otherwise providing the circuit boards with a silicone primer will ensure that the adhesion between the silicone potting material and the boards is much higher than the adhesion between the aluminum and the silicone potting material. However, as illustrated in FIG. 4, the silicone primer increases the adhesion to circuit boards too much, which resulted in occasional failures of the solder joints that hold the electrical components to the circuit boards. However, when lecithin mold release is used on the aluminum housing, the adhesion with the silicone potting is less than that of the unprimed circuit boards.

In order to balance the need for a low-temperature cure for the silicone to improve adhesion to the circuit boards while still preventing crushing of larger electronics components, such as electrolytic capacitors, a layer of polyethylene foam was added to protect such components at ambient temperatures higher than the cure temperature of the potting. FIG. 3 illustrates, diagrammatically, electrolytic capacitor 154 supported upon circuit board 132. Disposed between electrolytic capacitor 154 and silicone potting material 130 is a polyethylene foam cushion 184. While other materials can be used in accordance with embodiments of the present invention, polyethylene was chosen based on its compressibility and compatibility with two-part silicone potting materials. Foam that was harder to compress would have had to be thicker to absorb the pressure and foam that was not compatible with silicone potting material would result in cure inhibition in the silicone (cure inhibition results in a silicone that remains liquid rather than solidifying). Additionally, the lateral side walls of the component can also be protected by a foam cushion, as illustrated diagrammatically at reference numeral 186. The optional side wall foam can be in the form of a sleeve, or other suitable shape, that is sized to conform to the outer periphery of the electronic component.

FIG. 5 is a chart of silicone potting cure temperature versus potting adhesion and the amount of foam required for various experiments which gave rise to embodiments of the present invention. As illustrated in FIG. 5, the potting adhesion strength varies from that cured at approximately 22.5° Celsius having an adhesion of about 8.4 psi to a potting adhesion strength of approximately 1.2 psi for silicon potting material cured at approximately 85° Celsius. This is illustrated at line 190 in FIG. 5. Additionally, the region 192 illustrates results where the potting adhesion to the circuit boards was not high enough for acceptable results. Additionally, a minimum foam thickness needed to protect electronic components from the thermal compressive forces within the wireless process adapter vary from approximately five-sixteenths of an inch for a cure temperature of approximately 22° Celsius to a foam insulation of one-sixteenth of an inch required for silicone potting material cured at 60° Celsius. As a result of this experimentation, a silicone cure temperature of 50° Celsius was selected and a polyethylene foam pad thickness of one-eighth of an inch was selected to protect the larger electronic components within the wireless process communication adapter. As illustrated in FIG. 5, however, other combinations of foam pad thickness and silicone potting material cure temperature can be practiced in accordance with embodiments of the present invention. More specifically, FIG. 5 illustrates acceptable results by potting temperature of approximately 45° Celsius with a foam thickness on the order of seven-thirty-seconds of an inch to acceptable results being provided at a silicone potting material of approximately 55° Celsius with a polyethylene foam pad thickness of one-sixteenth of an inch.

Although the present invention has been described with reference to preferred embodiments, workers skilled in the art will recognize that changes may be made in form and detail without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
